Re: Scaleforum 2020

If there is a will to have a 'virtual' show of some sort surely all that is needed is to create a dedicated section of the forum and announce it. Members will then do the rest.

Here are a couple of Tim's videos.

Re: Converting Hornby Collett Non Corridor Stock to P4

Worth every penny. Pity they are double insulated, the original ones could be used for pickups - for coach lighting for example. I do remember with the single insulated ones - you had to ensure the wheels were the right way round - otherwise mysterious shorts! Indeed Tim, many a cross moment with m...

Re: Converting Hornby Collett Non Corridor Stock to P4

Yes they are dearer (£3.80 per axle IIRC) but without 'error' and well worth the extra IMHO.

Also they're now double insulated.

Re: Converting Hornby Collett Non Corridor Stock to P4

Brian Osborne at Branchlines still has a supply of 'Black Beetle' wheels from the Australian manufacturer as far as I know.

They're now supplied in stainless steel. As Tim says they're very solid and very round!

Re: Adjustable trestles

We have used these, or ones purchased a few years ago from Screwfix at a similar price for use on our Balcombe and Ouse Valley layout and find them ideal, so much so that we'll will never again use wooden home made trestles. The adjustable height starts at 800mm from floor level and the next at 850m...

I saw the Q1 and ballast hoppers in the fiddle yard at Scaleforum, and assumed that the brake van had yet to be attached.
